About: Medway Maritime Hospital

was taken to the hospital because I passed out at my friends apartment, where I was seen in A&E, who then referred me to another doctor. This doctor listened to my symptoms, i grant you, and then decided the doctor thinks I must have arrhythmia, and sends me for a chest x-ray and for extensive blood testing, as well a a five day event recorder. The doctor tells me to book a doctors appointment for in three weeks, by which point i should have all the testing done and a comprehensive picture for the doctor. Then I call up to try and book cardiac clinic for the event recorder only to say i cant get an appointment for three months. where exactly is the point in that!? this is a problem that has occurred for me for a while now, and by the time i get to be checked out for it, i could have passed out in the middle of a road. three weeks, yeah right when i cant get a cardiac appointment for three months!!!!! utterly ridiculous.
